ABSTRACT

Creative and convergent education is emphasized in the information society of the 21st century. In the case of overseas, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) education is emphasized as a representative form of creative convergence education, and geospatial technology is recognized as a very important factor as an element of STEM education. As a result, the geospatial institutions in U.S. and U.K. have provided the education contents and services based on geospatial technology in the K-12 level. In Korea, the importance of creative education has also been emphasized in recent years. However, creative and convergence education based on geospatial technology that can be positioned at the core of education is insufficient. This study focused on the strategy development so that the geospatial technology is actively used at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. In chapter 2, we examine the research related to the educational effect of teaching with geospatial technology. In chapter 3, we investigate the requirements for vitalizing the teaching with geospatial technology by surveying 300 teachers. In chapter 4, we analyze the overseas web sites that provide educational service based on geospatial technology. Based on this, we propose a strategy for educational service based on geospatial technology.
